Checkered Jumpsuit

by Michelle Lella


I've been a little MIA lately on the blog, but guess what... I'M BACKKKKK.

I'm here to talk about this gorgeous jumpsuit given to me by Creations Boutique. I've been in love with Creations for a while so I was so thrilled to get to work with them. I recently started on a new job on Mill Avenue and I'm actually super close to their Tempe location. Who doesn't love shopping on their lunch break?

I paired this checkered jumpsuit with these baby kitten heels I scored on Poshmark. I've never been a huge fan of light blue but I think it's so gorgeous to pair with neutrals for a minimalistic kind of pop of color.

I highly recommend checking out Creations when you have a second because their summer collection will be dropping soon! You can use the code "michelle15" and get 15% off your total order!

If you follow me on Instagram, you've heard that I made a promise to up the honesty and start sharing the real aspects of my life that often get left out or hidden. I'm really excited to be more open and think it's super important for bloggers and really everyone to show those different sides of their life. Not just the picture perfect photos :)

Strapless Jumpsuit

by Michelle Lella


I'm currently binge watching season 4 of Broad City and thinking about how awesome jumpsuits are. I used to be a dress only kind of girl but since I discovered I was actually tall enough to wear a jumpsuit, I can't seem to stop buying them.

This strapless jumpsuit is one I found on Poshmark but is originally from Urban Outfitters. Since I'm a little on the shorter side (okay okay I'm 5'1) I've found that cropped jumpsuits are perfect for petite girls.

I've linked some of my fav options below; happy shopping!

Pardon My French

by Michelle Lella


I was both nervous and excited to rock this beret. I've seen so many other bloggers pull it off so I decided to just go for it. #noregrets

These photos were taken outside of Hotel Adeline in Oldtown Scottsdale and it's such a lovely location! I'm dying to stay a night there and try their Whiskey Bar. I'm always down for a Scottsdale staycation!

Wishing you all a productive, yet relaxing Sunday <3

All Photography done by the girl boss, Sam Taylor.

Wide Leg Pants

by Michelle Lella


I always thought since I was a shorty, that I couldn't wear wide leg pants. Oh, the opposite! Now that cropped styles are in and being manufactured, I finally have a chance. Do they fit me cropped? No... but they're normal length on me and I'll take it!

I've been taking a dive into some retro styles too and I'm having so much fun playing with different fits and styles. Stay tuned as the experiment continues!

All photography from this shoot was taken by the lovely, talented Sam Taylor. I have to say.. I think her retro-style photography might've sparked my interest in some new fashion. Check out her Instagram for some much needed inspo!

Orange Print Romper

by Michelle Lella


I'm quite partial to any fruit printed piece. Pineapples, lemons and now oranges? I really don't discriminate. When I saw how affordable and comfortable this romper was, I snagged it off the rack at Forever21 without thinking twice!

Speaking of Forever21, I've re-fell in love with that store. I may be 26 years old, but the prices and unique outfits never get old to me! I'm a huge fan of their online shop because I can take my time and I personally feel they have a wider selection. 

This week felt SO long and I'm beyond thankful it's Friday! Hope you all have a wonderful, safe weekend!

Crop Tops Are Back... Well Kinda

by Michelle Lella


If I was to tell myself a year ago that I would be wearing crop tops again... I think I would have fainted or thrown up. But don't worry guys, the crop tops are UNDER something. Duh.

I've been in love with pinafore dresses for a while now and have found that short crop tops under them are the perfect match. Anything longer than a crop top can seem almost lumpy when layered so I consider this an awesome fashion hack!

These photos were taken by my dear friend, Kaitlin who you're probably tired of me talking about. But guess what.. I could talk about her all day so pull up a chair. Kaitlin is insanely talented and I'm so lucky to have her as a friend and photographer. If you're a local AZ blogger, definitely hit her up because she's open to collaborations of all kinds. :)
